Cromolyn stabilizes mast cells which are the agents of histamine release in the type 2 delayed hypersensitivity reaction. As with many things in human existence, there are fashions in medicine, and asthma is generally treated with short acting beta agonists- salbutamol, or albuterol if you are in the usa, and salmetrol, a long acting beta agonist plus an inhaled steroid. Intal was a brief favourite. Admittedly there are niche products that have cromolyn, but the possibility that it may delay or prevent Alzheimer's is a Christmas present for the world
